V for Vendetta quote...
« on: 30 October, 2013, 12:12:33 PM »
Hive mind help needed...

What issue and page (in the dc version) of V for Vendetta does the quote "People should not be afraid of their government, government should be afraid of their people" appear.

I've had a look through it but it's just not jumping out at me.

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure he doesn't say it in the book, he paraphrases Thomas Jefferson in the film, the original being "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."
